Easter Bonnet Parade 2014 in NYC

See also

Easter Sunday marked the annual event of the Easter Bonnet Parade in New York City. While being a different type of parade with no floats or bands, it could have used more costumes. But there was so many people there admiring the costumes that maybe next year, there will be some inspiration to be a parader and not just a spectator.

Of course, the Easter bunny was present to have his picture taken with everyone who wanted. There was even little, live bunnies at a few magician shows waiting to be a part of his magic tricks. The bonnets and costumes that were present by paraders were interesting to watch and nicely decorated also.

The Easter Bonnet Parade actually has a neat history starting in the late 1800's. It started off as one of the biggest Easter celebrations in the United States. Back then, it was more for religion, but as New York City is more multicultural and not everyone is religious on Easter, there could be a more cultural flair in the future for costumes too. A peep or chocolate bunny costume sound like sweet ideas for next year, for example.
